As a constituted Society, SABRE has a number of Elected Officers - collectively termed the management - who look after the Society and its website. They are elected in our annual elections in Spring each year. On this page, you can find out more about these people, what they do for you, and how you can get in touch with them.

Contents

President

The President serves as a neutral figure, mainly to administer SABRE's elections and other votes and, if needed, adjudicate in disputes between members. Since the President runs elections, he or she cannot take part in them, and therefore each election must see a new President elected. The full list of the President's duties is in the Constitution.

Owain Wright (Owain)

Owain discovered Sabre in 2004 and has been a member since August 2009. He joined the Committee as a Road Trip and Away Day Coordinator in December 2016. His interest in roads is purely amateur in nature; when he's not looking at maps or driving across them, he is Senior Lecturer in European History at Leeds Beckett University. He has been elected as Sabre's President for the 2017-18 term.

Owain's official e-mail address is president@sabre-roads.org.uk.

Site Manager

The Site Manager is responsible for the day to day running of the SABRE website and, in particular, the discussion forums. This includes moderating the boards, welcoming new members and promoting the discussion group. These tasks and others are shared with the Assistant Site Managers, though the Site Manager takes greater responsibility for them. The full list of the Site Manager's duties is in the Constitution.

Steven Jukes (Steven)

Steven has been a member of SABRE since February 2002, and served as President twice (including the very first post), Secretary and has held many other posts within the Society as well as writing and maintaining the famous Pathetic Motorways. He has appeared many times within both the written and broadcast media regarding his chosen specialist subject. This is his second term as Site Manager.

Assistant Site Managers

The Assistant Site Managers have the same responsibilities as the Site Manager (above) - usually the Site Management Team decides how best to share out the responsibilities, and this differs from year to year. The full list of the Assistant Site Manager's duties is in the Constitution.

Andy Boal (AndyB)

Andy joined SABRE in 2006, and has previously served as a forum moderator on other internet forums. This is his fourth year on the Site Management Team, having previously served as both Assistant Site Manager and Site Manager.

Owen Rudge (orudge)

Haydn Vernals (Haydn1971)

Haydn has been a member of SABRE since 2005, and has previously served as both Site Manager and Assistant Site Manager. Haydn has a particular roads interest in construction history, new schemes, road safety and traffic signs, which links with his many years experience working in traffic and road safety engineering.

Treasurer

The Treasurer, as you would expect, looks after SABRE's finances. Principally this involves collecting voluntary donations from members, administering the bank account and making sure costs for domain names and web hosting are paid.

Paul Martin (nowster)

Paul has been a member of SABRE since August 2004, and became Treasurer in 2009. He is also SABRE's IT manager, having day-to-day responsibility for the upkeep of the SABRE server.

Paul's official e-mail address is treasurer@sabre-roads.org.uk.

Elected Committee Members

In addition to the Elected Officers, at the annual elections in Spring each year, three members of SABRE are elected to serve on the SABRE Committee. Their role is to oversee the Elected Officers, and to act as a point of reference and guidance to the Elected and Appointed Officers.

Simon Davies (M4simon)

Simon has been a member of SABRE since March 2002, and has served as both Site Manager, Assistant Site Manager and Secretary in the past.

Tony Frost (Brenley Corner)

Tony has been a member of SABRE since April 2002, and has served as both Site Manager, Assistant Site Manager and Secretary in the past.

Jenny Campbell (Jeni)

Jenny has been a member of SABRE since November 2004, and has served as an Assistant Site Manager and Chat Moderator in the past.
